Hi van_smiles,

it actually doesn't matter which database you go for. MySQL is totally okay.

The login-in-script has to be done in a programming-language and I guess, as you are in the PHP-forum, you want to use PHP. The login is in general nothing really special.

1) You need a form that will allow the user to enter the username and password. Try something like this:

<html>
<body>
<form method=post action="login.php">
Username: <input type=text name="username"><br>
Password: <input type=password name="password"><br>
<input type=submit>
</body>
</html>

Clicking on "Submit" and the entered values will be send to login.php. So you have to create a file call "login.php" with the following code:

<?
$username=$_REQUEST["username"];
$password=$_REQUEST["password"];

//fetch your data from the database here....

if($username==$dbusername && $password=$dbpassword){
echo "welcome back, ".$username;
//store a value, that confirms, that the user has logged on
}
?>

If you need help how to fetch data from a database then ask here or have a look in the forum. There are plenty of tutorials that explain how to do that. I'm a bit to lazy to explain it right now.

Hope that helps for the moment. Feel free to ask if you still have problems.
